about how the fiscal cliff will hurt cities across the nation, philadelphia mayor michael nutter. mr. mayor, thank you so much for being on the show. >> thank you, luke. >> obviously, you've been very outspoken about how the sequester could have the severe impact on budgets for cities around the country. talk about that a little bit. we're only six days away. are you surprised by the lack of action here in washington on the fiscal cliff considering the dire implications for a lot of budgets in cities around america? >> actually, look, i am surprised. been around the block just a couple times. i've seen different things in the past, but this is very serious business, and apparently some members of congress just don't get it. the -- you can call it whatever you want to call it, but certainly fiscal is in front of it and it's not good. taxes going up for all americans, not a good thing. significant, possibly devastating budget cuts coming down to certainly state and local governments, not a good thing. and so this seemingly bad game of chicken, you know, this is not some schoolyard game

a perspective on how powerful the nra really is in the republican party because we had michael bloomberg, mayor of new york city, on "meet the press" last week. he said they are not that powerful. it is -- they are just -- ed rendell, former governor of pennsylvania. he got elected three times and said they are a piper tiger. >> i agree with the mayor. i said this for a very long time. the myth of the power of the nra is much greater than the actual power of the nra. you have to remember in -- talking about grover norquist and pledge or nra and -- their views, and -- you know, there are a lot of members of congress who are ideologically lined with the views of the organization. less about what the nra can do to them than they agree on most issues. they are getting that support. but if you go out and speak clearly to your constituents about what your views are on the issues and -- about revoking second amendment rights, really only talking about common sense reforms, i think most people would agree with you and most of your constituents, republican, sxind democrats would agree. >> we will be tal
the president makes a nomination. >> joining me now, presidential historian michael beschloss. some republicans say they go have problems with hagel's opposition to the war in iraq, that's one issue, pro--israeli groups question his stance on israel and gay rights groups have come out against comment he's made 14 years ago about gay nominees for ambassadorships saying that ambassador should represent american values. >> this is what is called a trial balloon, which is the white house puts out a name and so the president know what is kind of struggle there will be if he sends hagel's nomination to the senate. this goes all the way back to roosevelt who started doing that, leaking those things to reporters. the question is was it necessary to put the name out to know these objections would be raised or could that have been anticipated without putting chuck hagel through this either before he is nominated or before the nomination is pulled? >> you're saying this is typical in terms of the opposition and other presidencies -- >> and if you're president, you sure would rather have a nomination pulle
win and mark besh losh, michael beschlo beschloss, who are good friends of this show. we love to come and hear them. good to speak with you, mark updegrove. >> thanks for having me. >>> number five of our first five web stories, competing for tracking santa claus on christmas eve. since 1955, norad has been following santa and his reindeer, but google earth is also tracking him. so you have a choice now. google or norad. which is using bing maps this year. we're not sure what maps santa uses. maybe we'll find out one of these days. we put a week's worth of bad odors in a home. some aerosols may just mix with them. can febreze really remove them? we asked real people what they thought. take a deep breath for me. describe the smell. it's very pleasant. fresh. some kind of flower maybe? remove the blindfold... awww, oh yuck! i didn't smell any of that! febreze air effects doesn't mix, it actually removes odors. [ laughs ] wow, that's incredible. just another way febreze helps you breathe happy. a regular guy with an irregular heartbeat. the usual, bob? not today. [ male announcer ] bob h
candidate. >> erin? >> and there's also michael capuano and steven lynch who are both democratic congressmen from massachusetts, but none of these three have quite the star power as not only ben affleck but also ted kennedy, jr., who looks to be a big name for this seat. >> speaking of massachusetts, there was a detailed post mortem of the romney campaign in today's "boston globe." romney was reluctant to run and did so at his son's tag's insistence. this story quotes tag as saying he wanted to be president less than anyone i've ever met in my life. aaron, he recently wrote about the optimism within the gop, but does the choice of a reluctant candidate symbolize an identity crisis within the republican party? >> well, i don't know that i know -- i know that tag romney is looking out for his father, but let's be real about this. mitt romney was not the least bit reluctant to run for president and was plotting his second run for the presidency from the very moment that he conceded to john mccain, so let's take that comment from tag with just a little bit of a grain of salt. >> fair enough. eri
